The Critchlow Family is clearly a good time! They are the perfect example of the “Family that plays together stays together”Â As we were heading out for their shoot, Mom Shelli mentioned that the last Hawaii family picture they took was gorgeous…but didn’t really capture them…”On the beach walking…all perfect and loving”Â Â So I said, well how would it really go if we were capturing the real Critchlow Family… the first shot up above was the result — head locks, ear pulling…you get the idea.Â You’ll also notice that Dad’s loving embrace of his wife resembles more of a choke hold to the neck than a warm hug…guess that’s what 30+ years of bliss gets you
Oh I dare you…I totally double dog dare you to show up in a beautiful formal Cinderella dress like Kings High School Stevie and not expect that we’ll be making an “album cover-esque” shot out of you!Â This Seattle Senior pulled this fab gown out of theÂ garment bag and I’m almost certain that I physically gasped with delight.Â Stevie was so awesome…she swooshed, she skipped barefoot and gave me the beset senior pictures of the day….doesn’tÂ get any better for a high school senior photographerWe posted another on our Senior Pictures 2012 Facebook gallery page
As you can see, Eastlake High School Senior Ali totally took me back to my days as a Ford Model’s photographer — total fun from start to finish. I always say, the stuff we do here at Studio B from the poses to the wardrobe changes to the attitude are all just part of the senior pictures experience (I mean really…know one does this stuff in “real life” but it sure is a good time right!)Â It doesn’t hurt that this boy is completely well rounded in his style choices and delivered everything from cool to casual, athletic to dressed to the nines with equal ease.
Jillian and Caitlin have been best friends since they were tiny little babies so it only seemed fitting that we would capture this super sweet moment of the BFF’s cracking up during Jillian’s high school senior photo shoot.Â The blonde beauty traveled all the way from the Wenatchee, Washington to shoot at Studio B and honestly…I couldn’t be more flattered.Â (It means the world to me when anyoneÂ picks us to capture this HUGE senior milestone, but it is a special compliment when we have kids come from all over the state and even from other states to work with us)Â We posted another sneak peek of Jill on our Facebook page.
Sunday in the city doesn’t get any better for me than a day with my girls and their Daddy.Â Each year before the end of Summer I do a photo shoot with the girls…not a surprising tradition given that I’m a professional photographer!Â Â This Back to School photo shoot serves a couple of purposes…(1.) It’s fun for all of us but also (2.) I’m able to use the portraits for creating their personalized photo lunch boxes, Valentines Cards in February and then for me…something awesome for the walls in the house and gifts for the Grandparents.Â I had seen this graffiti wall years ago and was just waiting until my girls were old enough to do this portrait session.Â I wanted the look and feel to be like a super colorful school yard so I dressed them in the vibrant colors, grabbed a couple hoola hoops and we were headed for Seattle!
